Le Happy Restaurant Review

: Le Happy has a vibe all its own, starting with a décor of deep red walls, a glittering disco ball, and Polaroids of regular patrons in the restroom. And while you can eat dinner here, this place comes into its own as a hip nightspot. The menu offers an extensive selection of crêpes, both savory and sweet, along with salads and, intermittently, sirloin steaks. The crêpes are made with whole grain flour --- buckwheat for savory, whole wheat for sweet --- lending them unexpected flavor. Our favorite, Le Trash Blanc, a buckwheat crêpe stuffed with ham and cheddar, is served with a foamy Pabst Blue Ribbon brew. We also like the vegetarian combo made with tofu, black beans, cilantro and peanut sauce, and the "faux vegan" with spinach and cheese. The sweet crêpes are the most inspired, though, with chocolate banana, strawberries, poached pear and coconut as standouts. Kids can order Le Happy meal, a cheese crêpe accompanied by fresh fruit and a toy. And if you don't find your crêpe diverting enough on its own, peruse the basket of games for some grownup entertainment.
